The price of moving a small apartment will depend on three variables: 1) how furnished the apartment is, 2) stairs, and 3) the distance being moved. Most companies do have a two hour minimum, meaning that if your job were to take less than two hours you are still obligated to pay up to two hours worth of labor. For a lightly furnished apartment with no stairs we find the average cost to be between $350-$400. For a heavily furnished apartment with a considerable amount of stairs the average cost is usually between $750-$900. Local moves will most likely be based on an hourly rate, while longer moves (>100miles) will usually be a fixed rate.
